Call for Book Reviewers
International Sociology Reviews (ISR)

International Sociology Reviews (ISR), an official journal of the ISA, is considering proposals for book reviews and review essays. The list of books available for review is constantly updated and can be accessed at the following link:

Reviewers must have a Ph.D., or at least be advanced graduate students already writing their doctoral dissertations. They must have sufficient expertise in the field of the book they propose to review. It is essential that they have good writing skills. ISA membership is not required.

In addition, we welcome proposals to review recent sociological knowledge produced in formats other than books, such as audio-visual materials, specialized workshops, special issues of other journals, electronic resources, debates in national or regional scholarly societies, and other formats and venues.

All reviewers must follow our guidelines and familiarize themselves with the skills required to do a good review, both of which are available through the link above.

Proposals to review books not listed on our site are considered, provided that they are relevant to ISR’s mission.

Proposals to write reviews of material not available in English are particularly encouraged.

All prospective reviewers must adhere to our ethics and conflict of interest policy: they are expected to not have close personal or collegial relations to the authors of materials they propose to review.

Unsolicited reviews are not accepted. Please do not send a review without first proposing it and having it approved by the editor.

Please send all inquiries or proposals to:

Mohammed A. Bamyeh, Professor
Editor, International Sociology Reviews (ISR)
